Hummingbird in the Snow

On Saturday I posted pictures of our first hummingbird of the season.

Rain was forecast for Sunday. The rain began in the morning.  It soon turned to snow.  Within minutes there was a layer of snow covering everything including the hummingbird feeder.

The hummingbird came swooping around the feeder shortly after the picture of the feeder was taken. We removed the snow from the feeder and the hummingbird soon came back.

I took my first ever picture of a hummingbird in the snow.  We also saw a second hummingbird who we believe was the female. She made a brief visit but we did not see her again. The snow melted by noon.

Have I said that I love hummingbirds? Just another thread of my life.
